Default On the edge.

Grafton is not far from Morgantown, Fairmont or Clarksburg. It is a small town of about 6,000 with few employment options. Most people in Grafton commute to the bigger towns. The rental market is sparse but it is possible to find houses along many of the roads leading in and out of town at a bargain. Grafton is built on US-119, US-50 and US-250 in the absolute middle of Taylor county. Tygart Lake State Park is a nice recreation area that is very close. It has a lot of potential for a boom but as of yet has not gone off. The schools are typical West Virginia public schools nothing remarkably bad or good.

Good Luck!

Grafton is a very good place to invest.
When the 'Mountain Line' High Speed Rail is built to the Pittsburgh Airport, Grafton will be the end of the line, the old train depot will be the train stop.
(hasn't been announced yet, but who cares)
Taylor County government is a show-piece of low taxes and good management.
Buy everything you can.
